having lived in amherst for years during undergrad, I consistently recommended the jeff to friends and family. i finally decided to stay on my most recent visit and here is my impression: the inn staff wasn't rude, i'd say more indifferent/preoccupied; nice tile shower, but the glass and grout could use a good cleaning; musty smell in shower when water...

The Lord Jeffrey Inn is the perfect place to stay while visiting this charming, small college town. It's extremely convenient to everything, very comfortable,seemingly staffed by enthusiastic, helpful college students. We've stayed many, many times (for our daughter attended Amherst College years ago) and found the remodeling brought it up to a first class hotel.

If you need to stay as close as possible to the uni and don't need luxury or a high level of service, this will probably serve. The building is old and charming. The layout is a bit confusing at first, and the front desk staff person poured forth directions and instructions for parking and finding our room so rapidly, and... More

From the moment you are greeted at the reception desk, the enjoyment begins. The staff throughout the Inn is beyond compare. This is a place you can really unwind and never have to leave, as the meals are absolutely delicious. There is a roof-top terrace with a fireplace and a sitting area on the ground level with a fire pit.... More

The Lord Jeffrey Inn is a spectacular place - beautiful, charming, clean, bright, and eco-friendly ... and amazingly friendly staff and just an overall comfortable vibe and energy. It's location right in the center of town is ideal - we stepped right out the front door on Saturday and enjoyed the local Farmer's Market (summertime only, I believe). Just steps... More

I stayed one night at the Lord Jeffery Inn while picking my son up from summer camp at Amherst College. The location was ideal, being the only hotel on-campus, and very close to the Great Books program. Ample free parking in back of hotel, and super friendly staff. Room was spacious and washrooms newly renovated. The hotel had a library/lounge... More

We loved the hotel, the town and the restaurant. It made our tournament very pleasurable. The restaurant was unique and delicious. The town was a quintessential college town. We would absolutely stay here again.

Great place to stay to if you want to capture the NE charm. Great location in the center of town. Updated amenities and cozy on site venues for gatherings with friends and or family.

Great hotel right in down town. For $200 + 23 tax it is a little pricey but for the location and unique room it is well worth the price. The staff was always happy, friendly and helpful. There are numerous fireplaces going around the hotel to enjoy. Only issue is the hotel is a few buildings that were added over... More
